Hello,
you can access via USB only SD card on your camcoder.
The only way to transfer from the tape is via Firewire (IEE 1394) . You should have this port on your PC or laptop, if not you can buy external firewire card .
regards,
Konstantin

Cant download footage onto computer


It would probably be simpler to buy a card reader. This will also be easier in the sense that you won't be powering the camera while the card is in the computer with the card reader.
Make sure that the camera is turned on while it is connected to the computer and you're trying to sync it.

The camcorder is not working, comming up with hdd format error. I've lost all my footage from our trip to disneyland and it will cost about $400+ to recover if they can recover. The other problem i have is...


You are finding the same problems as most Hard-drive and DVD recording cam user these media's simply do not work, they are too un-reliable to put your special holidays and good events on, the only way is TAPE cameras (unless you are not too bothered about loss of your special times.
Sony have dropped DVD cameras already after 3 years of people having problems, and I hear that the hard-drive models will go the same way next year when new tape models come out in the spring.

I want to copy video footage onto PC/Mac from Sonday Handycam


You will need a standard video/audio rca cable (has a video out connector and audio on left side of lens), and a tv tunner (check that it has the rca in) that you can get as either usb (better double check if you have a usb 2 port on computer as it might be needed for capturing the video) or as a pci card.
Ussually the tunner would have a software to "capture" the video to the computer. And you would need to put your cam on play mode and start "capturing" and stop both the software and cam when the video footage ends.
I recommend corel studio 12, as it is very easy to use. Basically with corel no know-how required. Simple choices. Another great sofware is dvdsanta.
This would be for the pc.
Best wishes!!

How to connect


Unfortunately those old camcorders generally aren't compatible with modern computers. But don't give up hope, you may be able to find back roads and such to get it onto a computer. I'd suggest doing some research on the computer. Hope that helps.

Transferring mini dv to pc hard drive


You will need a firewire cable and a firewire input (IEEE 1394 port) on your PC. If you don't have the port on your PC, you'll need to buy a peice of hardware for your computer.

Putting video footage on my computer


To get your footage into the computer from DV tape you need a four pin firewire (IEEE1493 or iLink) cable from the camera to a six pin cable into the computer. USB will not do a proper job, it's for downloding photos or as you already mentioned, Web caming.
